R: We do not do orthopedic surgery, urology, heart surgery, obstetrics or gynecology.
Q: Do you require referral by a physician to be seen?
R: In general we do require that you be referred by another healthcare provider. In some instances we are able to see patients without physician referral, but it is important that we have appropriate records.
